In early summer pink water lilies, or lotuses, start blooming across the expanses of the Caspian shallows in the Volga delta. Covering the whole delta they make it look like a pink rug filling the air with a subtle, heavenly aroma. Here is your chance to escape civilization staying in this beautiful valley and to experience many new emotions. The subtle aroma of lotus flowers has a beneficial effect on the mood and the general physical and mental state of any individual: stress and depression disappear replaced by a positive attitude and a new feeling of being reinvigorated. We recommend that you undertake your trip to the lotus valley in the Volga delta before noon: this is when lotus flowers open fully.
